The Weinstein Co has taken North American rights to the upcoming bigscreen transfer of Michael Bond’s classic kids character Paddington Bear. Paddingtonwill be the first release under a new label for the company, TWC-Dimension, which will see Harvey and Bob Weinstein team on films for which they share a common passion. The Harry Potterfranchise’s David Heyman is producingPaddington which is fully financed byStudiocanal. Colin Firth has been set to voice the CGI bear and, in a reteam with his Railway Man co-star, Nicole Kidmanwill play an evil taxidermist out for revenge. Also joining the cast are Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters and Jim Broadbent.

David Heyman producing and Framestore handling VFX has me thinking this could be a great pic. Thoughts?    tatoufan on Sep 13, 07:34

No idea how popular Paddington is outside the UK, but if he does Singin' in the Rain, I'm there.   RufusS on Sep 13, 09:56
